Arthur Swallow Fairs Celebrates 20 Years

Calling all stall holders and buyers!

Arthur Swallow Fairs are celebrating 20 years of trading and what better way to mark the occasion than at the big, Easter Bank Holiday Antiques & Home Show at Lincolnshire Showground.

Back in 1995, Arthur Swallow Fairs hosted its very first event in one of the hangers of a disused RAF Airfield in Lincolnshire.  Fast forward twenty years and you will find us well and truly established at Lincolnshire Showground every two months for our massive Antiques & Home Show, filling a large part of the 200 acre site with an abundance of colourful and contrasting stalls; brimming with rare finds from across the UK and Europe.

To celebrate we will be taking some trips down memory lane, looking how things have changed over the years and holding a competition to win tickets to our event.

How can you get involved, we hear you ask?  We want to know what’s been your most memorable purchase or sale at any of our shows over the years.  The winner from the stall holder entries will win a free pitch for one show and the winner from the buyer entries will win two free tickets for the Lincolnshire Antiques & Home Show on the 6th – 7th April.

So, dig deep into those memory banks and contact us by either emailing us at or posting on our Facebook page, stating if you're a stall holder or a buyer.

Old photos taken at the shows featuring dodgy fashion and hairdos are also most welcome!
